[audio]Metamorphosis - Gerry Dempsey
A new song composed and performed by Gerry Dempsey. Metamorphosis (Animal Stories) The lion told tales of fighting and biting. The deer told tales of running and hiding.

The germ told tales of spreading and catching. The flea told tales of itching and scratching...

[audio]Beyond the Freeway - Gerry Dempsey
A newly composed song by Gerry Dempsey. There is a world outside the car, Beyond the verge - over the edge. Beyond the lawns and tidy fields - Behind the privet hedge. Far from Everlasting urban light and the Humming of the grid. Out of Range of central-heating. In the land of God Forbid! It is not the sort of place you'd like to go to after dark, (Or even in bright daylight) it is lonely cold and stark...

[audio]Dumb Culture - Gerry Dempsey
A newly composed song by Gerry Dempsey. Handsome Hero. Senseless Psycho. Lead-up to the final showdown. Mindless Violence. Final Vengeance. That is all we need to know. Build-tip to the big denouement. Take it slowly, stage by stage. Throw In several hapless victims, A sense of outrage to engage. We don't want an explanation. We're not interested in cause. All we want is satisfaction. Reasserting moral laws...

[audio]Universe at Night - Gerry Dempsey
A new song composed and performed by Gerry Dempsey. Lyrics The Universe at Night When he was a little boy he'd laugh and shout all day, But couldn't sleep alone without a light. His mum and dad did all they could to teach him to be brave And put away the creatures of the night. He grew to be a working man, as steady as a rock. Safe beside his wife, inside his home, But sometimes when she's sleeping he is paralysed with fear...

[audio]My Bike - Gerry Dempsey
A new song composed and performed by Gerry Dempsey. My Bike I'll cycle my bike wherever I like. Under the radar and over the dyke. Twice round the car-park And straight through the crowds.

We'll drive herds of cattle Into the West...

[audio]You'll be Alright - Gerry Dempsey
A new song composed and performed by Gerry Dempsey. You'll be Alright When kids throw bricks and insults, And jeer as you pass in the street. When the snot-nosed child of perfect strangers Spits in your face and stamps on your feet. When dogs snarl as you walk past, And bark out loud in disgust, When you're just the fag-end of the butt of the joke, Life's a bitch. Life's a bust. Inanimate objects attack you - without provocation or cause...

A new song composed and performed by Gerry Dempsey. Lyrics The Liquid Line of a Woman's Face The liquid line of a woman's cheek, Three-quarter profile, soft and sleek, Along which glides a rippling wave Which, by some mystery, I crave. The liquid line of a woman's jaw That Leonardo couldn't draw Or capture in a single frame Or count or classify or name. Is it exotic rarity? Or some familiarity? Encountered in my infancy? Imprinted on my memory? Or else what magic traps my gaze? What deep compuls...
